Ofcom has received 19 applications for community radio licences in Scotland under the third phase of community radio licensing.

Applications had to be in to the regulator by the middle of February, and will now be considered by the body’s licensing committee.

Applicants include Celtic Music Radio, who already run on medium wave and as a pop-up service on DAB but are after an FM licence, and online stations Generate Radio and TD1 Radio.

The full list of stations submitting an application for a community radio licence in Scotland under wave 3 is:

An Radio / An Rèidio (Outer Hebrides)
APNA Radio (Edinburgh)

Meanwhile, Ofcom says it will begin accepting applications for community radio licences in Northern Ireland from next Wednesday (14th March). The deadline for applications is 5pm on Thursday 7 June 2012.

After Northern Ireland, the regulator will invite applications later this year for stations in North East England and Cumbria. Next year, groups from Yorkshire and the Humber, the North West, the Midlands and East of England will be able to apply for community radio licences. Frequencies in the South East will be offered in early 2014.
